The Carmelite is a boutique hotel in the heart of Aberdeen’s bustling and historic Merchant Quarter. Just steps away from visitor attractions like the Aberdeen Maritime Museum and Provost Ross’s House, there is also plenty to see and do by way of shops, restaurants, bars, music venues and arts events.
The Carmelite offers vibrant and distinctive rooms, a grill-style restaurant, lounge bar, and 24-hour front desk. Other comforts include room service, a dry cleaning/laundry service and free WiFi. There is also a lift in the hotel.
Each of the Carmelite’s fifty-two rooms is decorated in a bold colour scheme and some even include quirky pop art features.
Every room is ensuite with a deep-soaking bathtub or shower, plus an LCD TV, free WiFi, hairdryer, desk, complimentary toiletries, electric kettle and iron with board. Room service is available at selected times and there is also a daily housekeeping service.
The hotel’s Carmelite Bar and Grill fashions dishes from both local and Scottish produce. The dining space is filled with cosy, circular booths, making it a comfortable spot to relax in over a meal. The purple and wine colour scheme adds a nice touch of glamour.
Menus can change, but sample mains include the pan-roasted chicken with wild mushroom and tarragon risotto, the seared halibut with crushed purple potatoes, and the vegan sausages with smoked chipotle & bean stew. From the chargrill, you can tuck into treats like the 10 oz ribeye steak, the 6 oz sirloin steak and for veggies, the mushroom and blue cheese burger stack.
Afterwards, you could relax in the lounge bar and sample the whisky, wine or cocktail menus.
As well as being just a hop, skip and jump away from key sights like the Aberdeen Maritime Museum and the historic Provost Ross’s House, the Carmelite is also close to the charming green space of Union Terrace Gardens, the Union Square shopping centre, and the oldest house in the city, Provost Skene’s House. As well as this, there are plenty of other Aberdeen attractions to enjoy, including Duthie Park and gardens, the historic Tolbooth jail, and the nine-hundred-year-old St. Machar’s Cathedral. If you fancy a day out on the coast, head to the haunting cliff-top ruins of Dunnottar Castle.
